A craving for some chicken and a penchant for playing poker added up to $1 million recently for an Oswego County resident. Charlene Hopkins stopped at the Mexico Big between her two jobs to pick up some chicken for dinner and used the change to buy some lottery tickets. After scratching off the ticket for a million dollars, she never got around to cooking the chicken.
Debra Noyes of Fulton, Oswego County, stopped into Struppler’s Shurfine market on March 11, 2010 looking for “something to cook on the grill that night for dinner.” Before heading to the meat department, Noyes stopped at the customer service desk to cash in a couple of winning Lottery tickets.
The New York State Lottery announced Tuesday morning that a person from Fulton won $1 million playing a scratch-off ticket lottery game.
The announcement does not give details such as the person’s name.
